A 50-year-old man died this morning after his bicycle was in a collision with a camper van this morning just before midday on the N18 near Bunratty — details of the driver were not released except to say there was no other person injured.

Damian Hogan of the Garda press office said: “Gardaí at Shannon, Co. Clare are investigating a fatal road traffic collision which occurred at approximately 11.45am this morning Sunday 26th March, 2017 on the N18 main Limerick to Galway Road near Bunratty.”

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

He added: “A 50-year-old male pedal cyclist was fatally injured when he was in collision with a camper van. His body has been removed to University Hospital Limerick. No other persons were injured in this incident.”

“The stretch of road is closed to facilitate a Garda Forensic Collision Examination.”

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact Shannon Garda Station on 061 365900, The Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
